Good morning, everyone. It's a dry, cool start to the day after quite a pleasant day yesterday. So far, this has been a lovely Autumn.
Thank you for your kind comments yesterday. A cold is a cold, isn't it? It's not nice but neither is it particularly 'dangerous' (usually) so I look forward to picking up again soon with thankfulness that in the meanwhile I can take things easy without causing too much hassle to anyone else. :-)
I was able to have my quiet day yesterday and also to have my chat with Chris after all. Her plans had to change so we went online and had a good old natter about exciting things like new babies. I'll take the blanket, etc, round to her next week so they can take it with them when they next visit.
I looked online for a 'corner to corner' crochet stitch that I saw on Etsy, I think, and found it on YouTube (how would we manage without YouTube to teach us things like that) so I think I will use it to make another hottie cover - well, it is worth a try and it will be much easier to get a good fit. Not being a particularly experience crochet-er, it is another stitch I have never come across before and it's always nice to add to ones repertoire of stitches.
As well as that, I am working on another 'Elmer' jumper, this one in a larger size and destined for the Sally Army drop off point. It's a way of working through my stash and doing a bit of something helpful at the same time and it keeps my fingers and brain a bit busy. They say activities like knitting and crochet help to keep the brain engaged and working and mine probably needs all the help it can get! I haven't dropped off the practise blanket yet and will probably wait until I have a little pile of things (I'm doing another clothes sort out too).
Today looks like being another gentle day which is just as well. I slept brilliantly last night but woke feeling woozy and headachey (three cheers for aspirin, etc) but that's just the cold making its presence known, nothing bad.
It's Slimming World first thing and after than I need to come home and do a general tidy up for the cleaners after which I can rest and chill for pretty much the rest of the day, Kindle open, telly on and knitting needles out.
It's a good old life.
Take care, everyone, and have a great day. xx
